Is Politics The New Religion In America?

THE JIM STROUD SHOW - The American people have become so hyper-polarized that some find it impossible to be friends, date or work with someone of a different political perspective. Is that a good thing? Whatever happened to debating ideas and parting as friends, despite neither party changing their minds? In this episode Jim shares data on why people rarely change their minds, even when presented with new data.

Plus, Jim interviews Seth Radwell, author of "American Schism" and discovers that the political divide in America has been round since its founding. Afterwards, Jim chats with "The Bass Sisters" about how politics seems to be replacing religion in our modern day culture.
